Integrating Passion with Purpose: A Recipe to Live Your 2.0
July 3, 2019
Hosted by Alise Cortez, PhD
Have you ever felt an irresistible nudge encouraging you to step outside of your comfort zone? According to Wei-Li Shao, more often than not, this nudge isn’t a question, but rather an answer. After spending 18 years in the pharma industry and experiencing a severe health scare, Wei-Li decided to take the leap and pursue what he calls his “2.0”. In this episode, we hear Wei-Li’s story in depth -- highlighting the moment he learned of a sudden brain tumor, and the journey it took for him to heal and finally feel a sense of “home” after switching industries to work at Omada Health. While many of us wait for something to force us outside of our comfort zone, Wei-Li encourages us to take our nudges seriously and take action through a series of bite-sized steps. Be prepared to be inspired, deeply moved, a bit shaken off your feet.
